Brown Palace - Denver

My wife and I flew up to Denver Friday morning for 2 nights at the Brown Palace (Autograph collection), staying on points. The hotel is over 100 years old and built on a triangular plot of land just a block off the 16th St. mall. Because of an early flight, we arrived at 11:30AM and were advised that we were being upgraded to a mini-suite, but it was not yet ready. We left a phone # and our carry on bags and headed out to walk the downtown. We had a Segway tour scheduled for Sat. morning, so we decided to walk to the Segway location so we would know where it was located. We got back to the hotel at 2:30PM without a phone call, but our room was ready. I am typically not a fan of old hotels because the bathrooms are usually very small. In the mini-suite we had two sinks and a shower big enough for 2 with 5 shower heads. I was impressed with the upgrade. At 4 PM we were walking through the lobby and notice that they were setting up wine and mini lobster rolls. They said that they would be giving out wine and lobster rolls starting about 4PM. Very tasty. On Saturday they did wine with mini Cuban sandwiches. Since they do not have a CL, we were given breakfast vouchers for $32/day that we could use in the restaurant. Saturday we had lox and bagels and Sunday we did the breakfast buffet. The breakfast buffet was right up there with a JW. Denver is finally running their light rail out to DIA. It is scheduled to be running in Nov 2016.

    What a great experience to share with the community here at Insiders, curiousone

     

    You trip to Denver sounds to have been delightful! I've only traveled through Denver and didn't have the opportunity to spend much time there. Are there lots of things to do downtown?

      If you enjoy downtowns, Denver has become a pretty vibrant place. They have good public transportation downtown. (A key item for anyplace we visit, since we do not want to do rental cars.) Currently, we have been using the AF line of the public bus to get from the airport to the downtown. One of the "main" attractions is the 16th St. mall. They closed about 2 miles of 16th St. to traffic (Except a free bus) and created a "mall". At one end is LoDo (Lower Denver), which includes the Rockies stadium and Union Station. They did a great job of repurposing the old Union Station train terminal, while still running the Amtrak trains out of the terminal. One thing you will notice is quite a few street people. Apparently some of the cities in neighboring states provide one way bus tickets to Denver for their street people. I would definitely recommend a visit, preferably in summer.

    Light rail to DEN!  Thank you...thank you...thank you.  Can't tell you how long I've been waiting for this since UA likes to strand me in DEN.  Also, you can often get a very reasonable rate at the RC in downtown Denver, and it is lovely - highly recommend.
